Rite Aid Again (aka My New Addiction)...

Since I needed to do a little shopping today I decided to go to Murray so I could do a deal or two at Rite Aid. I'm still getting the hang of stacking all the store coupons with the manufacturer's coupons, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

I'm sorry I wasn't able to list where all the coupons came from; this last year has been so crazy with moving twice, having so much of our stuff in storage for so many months, and having no internet at home from October last year until a few weeks ago. I am finally starting to get all my coupons organized and reaching a point where I can stay caught up with the deals a little better. It's such a good feeling.

I also wanted to make sure I mentioned how wonderful the cashiers at the Murray Rite Aid were today! The Noxema razors weren't marked so I took them to the register to get a price check and the cashier noticed there was a coupon in the package and told me if I wanted to I could take it out & use it when I checked out. Three of the packages had $1.00 coupons & 3 of them had $2.00 coupons. I already had 5 of the $2.00 coupons so I only had to pull 1 coupon out of a package. Some of my Rite Aid coupons beeped, but she just read them to make sure I had the product and put them through anyway. I'm always so thankful when I get cashiers anywhere that are so helpful!

Afterthought - As I was reading this checking for typos (after I published it LOL) I started thinking about how much I saved. Not off regular prices, it's not likely I would pay regular price for most of this, but how much I saved just off the sale prices... The total sale price before coupons was $63.90 (before tax), the total after coupons was $9.42. That means coupons saved me $54.48 or about 85.3%... Yup, I love what I do!
